Why oatmeal breakfast is best for dieters

New Delhi, 27 Jan (ANI): Having oatmeal for breakfast can make you feel fuller, with lower hunger ratings and fewer calories at lunch. The study showed statistically significant higher ratings of fullness, lower ratings of hunger, and fewer calories consumed at lunch after consuming oatmeal compared to sugared corn flakes or water.The study authors suggested that the greater satiety effect of oatmeal cereal compared to sugared corn flakes or water might be due to a slower gastric emptying (oatmeal took longer to leave the stomach). Given that the results were more pronounced in overweight subjects, researchers suggested that a longer-term weight control study testing daily oatmeal for breakfast is warranted. Jan 27, 2015
